A- Pours black with hints of deep crimson red when shown to light. Large, fluffy, light khaki head.
S- Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate
T- Subdued version of the nose although still robust and a bit smokey. Tastes like a porter, drinks like a lager.
M- Smooth, full-flavored body, yet highly drinkable, crisp and doesn't stick around in the mouth long.
O- I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, it has a smokey, roasted, and robust flavor yet it remains crisp, refreshing, and easily drinkable.

Another Utah beer in my series of Utah beers with my friends. This beer fits the style of a schwarzbier, although still a little light, due, in my opinion, to the Utah beer laws. There is an initial yeasty smell, almost cheesy.

12 oz can.

Pours deep brown with ruby highlights. A small light tan head sits on top and leaves a fair amount of lacing. Roasted malt, coffee, and light herbal hops in the aroma. The coffee lingers in the taste and makes for a bitter finish. Medium light body and clean. The bitterness from the roasted malt and hops is just a little too much.

This beer pours a reddish tinged black with a small but lasting head. The aroma start with vague wood smoke, rubber, coal, and cooked bulgar. The flavor leads with that slight wood smoke, followed by tart cherry, dark chocolate, and toasted seeds. The mouthfeel is thin but fluffy. Overall this is a nice little beer for when the mood for dark strike, but you want something lighter bodied as well.

Great packaging. Wicked look. This beer is excellent with food. But most importantly it's cheap.
Great black lager for people that do not like black lagers and excellent introduction to these type of brews.
